Wainfest 2019 Annual Arts and Book Festival

October 2019, Libraries throughout Co. Donegal

Further details available on:

Wainfest is an annual week-long, countywide arts and book festival dedicated to children.

The term “Wain” is a local affectionate word used when talking about a small child (wee one). And we think it’s a great fit for our festival that caters just for them!


Since its’ inception in 1996 the festival has grown from strength to strength and is one of the highlights in the Donegal County Councils’ calendar of events. Wainfest plays a pivotal role for schools and home schoolers in the area allowing them to access the very best in children’s performances.

It’s not just during school hours either! Beginning and ending with families at heart, on the first and last Saturday of the festival, children are encouraged to come along to events with their families for some first class fun.
In 2015 there were 108 school events and 32 family events organised throughout the county reaching a total audience of 7,392. Not bad for a week’s work!
